Nobel Laureate Trashes GW Hoax

Video: Nobel laureate trashes GW, from QUIXOTES LAST STAND

Quiz for GW fans and fanatics (courtesy of Donna Quixote):
So to all of those devout members of the Church of Global Warming, answer these questions for me.
What is the optimum temperature, for all species, including man, to thrive?
What is the maximum population of humans that is acceptable?
What is the perfect combination of GHGs in the atmosphere??
What is the perfect level of humidity?
What is the optimum amount of annual rainfall, globally? For extra bonus points,
break it down by continent.
What is the perfect size for both polar ice caps?
What’s the optimum size for a glacier….at what point should it stop growing or shrinking?
What is the perfect ph level for every ocean, for all marine life, for all coral, for all marine algae and plant life to flourish?
What’s the optimum perfect sea level?
What is the maximum amount of volcanic ash and soot that can be shot into the atmosphere before it starts to affect the climate?
What is the maximum number of severe storms — hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes — that you feel are acceptable? What’s the highest category allowed?
Tell all of us deniers what the absolute perfect climate is, so that no species ever goes extinct again, so that all flora and fauna flourish, so that we can tell the earth to stop changing her climate….something she’s done naturally for billions of years…..and stay at exactly the levels that you have decreed to be perfect for all life on planet earth.)

Are the Wynne-lose Liberals Destroying Evidence…

Globe and Mail, Richard Blackwell
An offshore wind farm developer that is in the midst of a lawsuit against the province of Ontario is now accusing the Liberal government of destroying documents related to its case.

Trillium spent years and millions of dollars developing plans for an offshore wind farm in Lake Ontario near Kingston, but it had the rug pulled out from under it in February, 2011, when the province said it would not consider any offshore development until more scientific studies were done. The decision came the same day Trillium was to sign a large financing deal.

However, in 2013 the Ontario Court of Appeal said the company could go ahead with one specific allegation, that the government’s decision amounted to “malfeasance in public office.”

Among Trillium’s evidence for the destruction of documents, its court filing says, is that some of the communications the company had with the government are “nowhere to be found in the [government’s] documentary productions.”

DOES ANY OF THIS really surprise you?  You can win and lose with the Ontario government in the Green Energy scam.

INFRASOUND: NASA Knew Along

Stop These Things brings us news about the depth and breadth of the three decades of wind industry conspiracy to cover up the truth about IWTs and Infrasound (aided and abetted by the Ontario Government these latter years).

[quote] Starting in the early 1980s, a decade’s worth of research was undertaken by NASA into a series of large wind turbines (then being developed by NASA), which included a stellar cast of physicists, meteorologists, geophysicists, seismologists, engineers (both mechanical and acoustic), and psycho-acousticians. Part of that research involved a multidisciplinary effort to identify the causes of complaints made by neighbours in relation to the operation of those turbines: we refer to it as “the NASA research”, which also included work carried out by Neil Kelley.
[quote] In 1987, at a wind power conference in San Francisco, the wind industry was presented with the findings of NASA’s research; and told that these findings meant that dB(A) was an inappropriate method of measuring wind turbine noise, and the impact of that noise on neighbours. It was further told that low-frequency noise and infrasound were the dominant features of wind turbine generated noise, which would cause significant “annoyance” to neighbours.

The STT post continues to outline the symptoms associated with Infrasound (we know what they are, but not the Ontario government at the behest of wind developers).  The post continues to outline the Wind Industry cover up of the NASA findings.  That Industry sought to create its own Noise Guidelines in order to facilitate turbine development, and eventually sought to raise noise limits to higher dB levels so that larger and larger IWTs could be built.  The STT post links to a Timeline to illustrate the NASA research:
[quote] Each page of the TIMELINE gives a short run down of significant events (a headline and brief summary); contains images of key data or pages extracted from research papers referred to; some of those images are copies of the entire paper being referred to – these documents can be accessed for reading and printing by dragging your mouse over the image and clicking on the “pop out” window at the top right of the image (you will see a scroll-bar on those where a paper is reproduced). Below the images you will find links to papers, webpages, including the sources referenced and STT posts, for example (if the link does not work, simply copy and paste the URL into a fresh tab in your browser).

The World Comes Full Circle:[quote] The recent research that confirms the extensive work done by NASA, includes work carried out by:
Dr Paul Schomer, George Hessler, Rob Rand and Dr Bruce Walker at Shirley, Wisconsin in 2012 (available here);
Professor Colin Hansen and his team from the Adelaide University at Waterloo in South Australia during 2014 (see our post here); and
the groundbreaking research conducted by Steven Cooper at Cape Bridgewater in Victoria, also during 2014 (which has been recently published – see our posts here and here).
[links are in the original post].

CONCLUSION: the Original NASA research verified and expanded by recent research proves the Wind Industry’s Noise Guidelines are, IRRELEVANT.

Update on PC Leadership

My keyboard is faster than google.
Toronto Wind Action TWA is keeping an eye on the PC leadership race. They have printed a reply fromChristine Elliot to a questionnaire from TWA members:
Christine Elliot on Green Energy.
Ms Elliot states:
First, I will repeal the Green Energy Act. (I was wrong to suggest otherwise).
Second, I will impose an immediate moratorium (Me wrong again).
Third, I will examine each existing wind and solar contracts (Good!, not a commitment to cancel but a good start).
Fourth, I would amend laws and regulations to restore the power of local
communities
(The lady knows her stuff and understands the issue).
Fifth, I would enshrine the independence and autonomy of the Independent
Electricity System Operator (IESO)
(absolutely necessary).
Sixth, my energy and environmental policy would not include a carbon tax or a
cap and trade system.
(no brainer)
I won’t try to use energy policy to solve every social, political, economic or
environmental policy in Ontario
(perfect).

I don’t think any leadership candidate would quibble with any of these points.
I’m not picking a winner, but I misjudged Christine Elliot rather too hastily.

BEWARE the Ont. PC’s and Their Bearing Gifts

Christine Elliot, Ontario PC leadership candidate, Feb.11 debate in Ottawa, as reported by Toronto Sun:

“I’m a little concerned with your position in regards to the wind turbines,” Elliott said to McNaughton. “We have to remember that Ontario is an international jurisdiction for other businesses to look at. To decommission all the wind turbines and scrap all the contracts sends a very bad signal to businesses across the world. We need to attract businesses in Ontario and not cause them to look at other jurisdictions.”

Elliot is clearly a liberal Conservative tied to the status quo and urban voters. She does not understand rural Ontario and the impact of Turbines on the life, land and property of rural and agricultural residents and voters. The bad signal she fears would go ONLY to wind turbine developers, and not to other investors (whose side is she on?). Once it is clear that GREEN Energy is a shibboleth in Ontario that provides excess energy at inflated and tax subsidized costs that DISCOURAGES investment, investors will be more comfortable putting their cash into the province when they know its government spends its money wisely by controlling its costs.  And not running down the rabbit holes of the latest scientific fraud..

The only investors looking to other jurisdictions will be Greed Energy developers. Be wary of any PC leader not tuned in to voters outside the GTA.

Government “Charity” Slush Fund

Ontario Charities give to other Charities©Parker Gallant at WCO.

The first annual report of Friends of the Greenbelt contained the following message:
“The physical area of the Greenbelt is enormous and the challenges inherent in pursuing our mission are significant. As such, we need to concentrate our resources over a short time period in order to achieve our ambitious goals and we intend to gift the $25 million endowment over a period of five years.”

Enabled by Tax Dollars.

I am sure the likes of Environmental Defence, David Suzuki Foundation, the Sierra Club, and the others loved the fact that fund raising was made so much easier by having an entity focused on doling out $25 million of taxpayers’ money, and to see it replaced with another $20 million as soon as the first “endowment” was gone.

All the “charities” work to advance Ontario’s Liberal Greed Energy policies.  Suzuki, among others, is not a charity but a political lobby group. FOG, aptly named, compensated staff with over 1 million $$$ which represents over 50% of FOG’s (so aptly named) expenses.  Read Gallant’s Post at WCO.  You’ll be amazed, and sickened.

Walmart & Your Electricity Bill in Ontario

©Parker Gallant: Minister Bob Chiarelli maintains,
Walmart. Ontario’s electricity system is “exactly the same” as Walmart.

Ontario’s ratepayers might be much better off if Walmart really was running the electricity system in Ontario. At least Walmart isn’t continually running at a loss.

Close to Home

West Lincoln township officials have come up with a way to protect residents from IWT noise by reviewing local by-laws and those in other municipalities.

Plympton-Wyoming may have hit on a way of doing this:
“The Municipality of Plympton-Wyoming, near Sarnia, Ont., has passed a bylaw that requires an expert in decibel reading to deal with noise complaints. Should a noise exceed the allowable limits of the municipality’s noise bylaw, a fine can be applied. The municipality’s CAO confirmed to township staff they have a sound engineer on retainer to address complaints under the bylaw, should any occur.” [Grimsby Lincoln news] [OWR].

The Ontario Green Energy Act states that noise levels from Turbines cannot exceed 40dB. After reviewing the cost of noise inspections, West Lincoln Township is considering a by-law modelled on the one in Plympton-Wyoming which includes measurement of low frequency sound (infra-sound). A report back to Council on the matter should be forthcoming in the near future.

Wainfleet, next door to West Lincoln, presumably is listening, waiting and wanting the same thing.

Ontario Green Energy

…policy and law are the child of a failed and false myth called, Global Warming.  An Ontario premier and an Ontario Cabinet minister decided they wanted to leave a legacy, the one for posterity, the other for political advancement.  Both are gone, but what they have wrought is still here, still wasting hundreds of millions of dollars and costing people their health, their wealth and their wellbeing.

Lawrence Solomon writing in the Financial Post (Jan.09/15) makes his predictions for 2015: “The global warming enterprise provides one example. Since 2008, I have been predicting that the warmists, whose cause at root is based on faith and sustained by deceit, will fail to make the case that carbon represents a danger to the planet. Although the elites have mostly bought the deceits — all ultimately resting on jigged computer models — the masses mostly have not, as seen in public opinion polls throughout the world. The public’s rejection of the global warming orthodoxy then led politicians to slash subsidies to renewables and to scrap plans for carbon taxes. Political parties that high-handedly ignored the public by pushing global warming measures, such as Canada’s Liberal Party in 2008 and Australia’s Labour government in 2013, went down to crushing defeats.”
“As renewables lose momentum in 2015, fossil fuels will gain it. It can’t really be otherwise. If the glut we now see in oil and gas continues, the low prices that result will spur consumption. A rise in prices, on the other hand, would only further spur shale gas and oil development. Up or down, I predict, the environmental lobby loses the energy war, even if — should President Obama veto the Keystone XL Pipeline — it wins some battles.”

Thanks to this politically correct fiction of Global Warming, Ontario and its citizens continue to pay for the vanity of the original formulators of the province’s Green Energy illusions.

Ontario Rings in the New Year with a 12 million dollar hangover [WindConcernsOntario]:
Once again Ontario’s oh so generous ratepayers, ushered in the New Year by treating our neighbours to some very cheap electricity. We were much nicer this January 1st than last year, as we exported a record 87,000 megawatt hours (MWh) at a bargain price. That sale generated revenue of about $275,000 to offset a small part of the costs to Ontario’s ratepayers. We exported 38,000 MWh more (+ 78%) than on January 1, 2014, and a year ago we generated $1,450,000 for the smaller number of MWh sold. Parker Gallant.
Happy New Year New York and Michigan:
In total, January 1, 2015′s generation cost Ontario’s ratepayers $7 million (net) for wind, another $400,000 for curtailed wind, about $1.2 million for steamed off nuclear, almost $1 million for “embedded” wind and solar and about $3 million for the Net Revenue Requirement for those idling gas plants.
